Brescia president Massimo Cellino has claimed that teenage midfielder Sandro Tonali is worth £259m.
The 19-year-old starred for Brescia last season as the club earned promotion from Serie B, while he has already made eight appearances in Italy's top flight during the 2019-20 campaign.
Interested parties will seemingly have to pay a world-record fee for Tonali, though, as the Brescia president has claimed that the youngster is worth £259m.
"For me he is worth €300m (£259m), which means I don't want to sell," Cellino told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I have a dream. If Sandro accepts, I am ready to make a big financial sacrifice to extend his contract. It's up to him to decide. He can stay here and enjoy his football, or go to a big club and risk being left on the bench.
"All the big Italian clubs [have been in contact]. Abroad there's Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, but in my view, he'd be better off remaining as a protagonist with Brescia."
Tonali will see his current deal at Stadio Mario Rigamonti expire in June 2021, although the Italian club do have the option of activating a further 12 months. body check tags ::
